Ultherapy has quickly become a sought-after skin rejuvenation treatment by people in search of a non-invasive way to restore the youthful appearance of the skin. Ultherapy gives great results without surgery, and that’s why it has become a favorite of patients and dermatologists alike. But how does the treatment work, and how much do Ultherapy treatments typically cost?
What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a non-surgical facial treatment that uses ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin. The two-fold action of the Ulthera device sets it apart from other facial rejuvenation treatments that only tighten the skin.
The focused ultrasound energy penetrates down to the foundational tissue layer of the skin, and delivers just the right amount of heat to create a lifting effect. The ultrasound energy also causes the skin to contract, and stimulates the collagen fibers. As collagen builds over the following months, there is a noticeable improvement in the tone and texture of the skin.
Ultherapy treatment uses uniqueultrasound imaging, which allows physicians to see the layers of the skin being treated, and direct the energy where needed.
Is it painful?
The treatment is generally not painful, but patients will feel some heat as the ultrasound energy is deposited in the tissues below the skin.
How much do Ultherapy treatments cost
The cost of Ultherapy treatments varies depending on the extent of the area being treated. The cost will also differ depending on where you live. Treating the face and neck can cost anywhere from $2,500 to $4,000.00. If you are treating a smaller area such as the region around the mouth, the cost can range from $500 to $1,000.
Ultherapy skin rejuvenation treatment is available in the greater Atlanta metro area at Skin Cancer Specialists.
